PPSL.site users' platform
PPSL.site, the online PPSL user's platform, mirrors the offline PPSL logbook that is supplied as an Excel workbook. However, PPSL.site is more flexible, provides considerably more information to assist users, and can be used in several different ways.
The PPSL Repertoire, part of PPSL Documentation, provides information about reference frameworks for sustainability issues and objectives that can be consdered for a project or programme.
PPSL User Instructions
The PPSL User Instructions describe the step-by-step process by which a PPSL logbook is completed using the information from the PPSL Repertoire to complete summary and monitoring tables.
PPSL Monitoring Tables
A PPSL logbook is a structured support tool comprising a series of monitoring tables (or worksheets) that allows a user to define and then monitor sustainability issues and objectives.
The Project/Programme Sustainability Logbook guidelines describe how a PPSL logbook accompanies a building or a service infrastructure facility, or a group of buildings or facilities, throughout its lifetime using regularly updated benchmarks.
PPSL Explanatory Notes
The PPSL Explanatory Notes forming a major part of the PPSL Guidelines provide a common language and a general understanding to help apply the PPSL Information Sheets in the PPSL Repertoire to the PPSL Monitoring Tables.
PPSP generic users' site
The Project/Programme Sustainability Logbook (PPSL) platform site PPSP, a generic users' platform that integrate sustainability logbooks and indicators, has been replaced by the Urban Sustainability Management Platform (USMP) City Logbooks site that allows a user to create sustainability logbooks using both PPSL reference frameworks and standard indicator sets for cities.
